Welcome to the PAPANUI LEAGUE CLUB Website, introducing to you a League Club with over 90 years of rich history under its belt, dating back to 1922 when it was first founded. Papanui is one of the larger League Clubs in Canterbury, ranging from our nursery team right througnh to our Premier squad. We are a growing club with a big focus on our Junior football development. As we see this as a pivotal part in keeping Papanui a strong and successful Rugby League Club, we realise that the future of our club solely depends on the continued support from players, parents, sponsors, and of course our very dedicated followers, with the leadership of a strong and focussed committeeand with this support we will continue to carry the club in a very unique and positive environment.

After the 2011 Earthquakes, as families moved out of the district our structure had a very significant change but this did not break us, we are rebuilding and putting in place very positive plans for the future. Our numbers are still very strong and we intend on developing this even further.

We have a very loyal backing, supporters who have stood beside us through our hardest time, its our turn to give back 2015 is our year.

We welcome any players at any level, come down and see us at the Papanui domain.
